The Truth About Love and Lightning
by Susan McBride
No current Talk conversations about this book.
This book reminded me of Sarah Addison Allen. A magical tale that carries you away with a smile on your face. I was pleasantly surprised. I would love to read more books by this author! ( )
What one of us would not like a man whose arrival was heralded by lightning? Although this book has a somewhat predictable plot, the characters are unique, a pair of blind twins with different talents in compensation, a woman with a big secret and her daughter. This was a fun read, somewhat magical in places, with a family value type of lesson, about hope and love. This will appeal to readers who like Sarah Addison Allen and her whimsical stories.
"Seamlessly toggling between decades, McBride delivers a poignant page-turner with flawed but lovable characters."
"As far as Gretchen Brink is concerned the tornado that just ripped through her land has nothing on the storms of a different sort happening all around her. Her grown daughter, Abby, has returned home with news that she's pregnant and no, she's not sure if she's going to marry the father or not. A man with no memory was dropped practically on her doorstep. And the not so little white lie she's been telling for years is about to catch up with her. Abby is sure that the mysterious man is her long-lost father Sam, who has finally returned just when she needs him most. As Abby, Gretchen, and Sam get closer, the lie Gretchen told all those years ago begins to haunt her. When her secrets come out, and Sam's past is finally revealed, will it tear down this fragile life they've built-or will the truth bring them all closer together?"--
